- Newspaper in England will "Thrive" with Casual Photographers: The Manchester Evening News is ditching its six-member photo staff and replacing them with "casual photographers" and photo agency pictures; Dennis Dunleavy.
Note that "the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester has a population of 2,539,000" (Wikipedia).
- Looking back in "The 100th issue of the Digital Journalist": "During these past eight years, we have seen photojournalism and broadcasting taken apart and put back together in new configurations that we could not have imagined."
- The National Press Photographers Association`s contest "The Best of Photojournalism 2006" adds "a category for Photo blogs, recognizing the long standing connection between the amateur and professional photographic communities and how today, technology and the web are influencing both". Eligible are "Photo Blogs by photographers who are amateurs--that is, whose primary income is not derived from photography."
Submitted pictures "must have been organized in a group, like a Flickr photo set". The deadline for entries is February 10.
